How to green the world’s deserts and reverse climate change | Allan Savory

Translator: Joseph Geni
Reviewer: Morton Bast The most massive tsunami perfect storm is bearing down upon us. This perfect storm is mounting a grim reality, increasingly grim reality, and we are facing that reality with the full belief that we can solve our problems with technology, and that’s very understandable. Now, this perfect storm that we are facing is the result of our rising population, rising towards 10 billion people, land that is turning to desert, and, of course, climate change. Now there’s no question about it at all: we will only solve the problem of replacing fossil fuels with technology. But fossil fuels, carbon — coal and gas — are by no means the only thing that is causing climate change. Desertification is a fancy word for land that is turning to desert, and this happens only when we create too much bare ground. There’s no other cause. And I intend to focus on most of the world’s land that is turning to desert. But I have for you a very simple message that offers more hope than you can imagine. We have environments where humidity is guaranteed throughout the year. On those, it is almost impossible to create vast areas of bare ground. No matter what you do, nature covers it up so quickly. And we have environments where we have months of humidity followed by months of dryness, and that is where desertification is occurring. Fortunately, with space technology now, we can look at it from space, and when we do, you can see the proportions fairly well. Generally, what you see in green is not desertifying, and what you see in brown is, and these are by far the greatest areas of the Earth. About two thirds, I would guess, of the world is desertifying. I took this picture in the Tihamah Desert while 25 millimeters — that’s an inch of rain — was falling. Think of it in terms of drums of water, each containing 200 liters. Over 1,000 drums of water fell on every hectare of that land that day. The next day, the land looked like this. Where had that water gone? Some of it ran off as flooding, but most of the water that soaked into the soil simply evaporated out again, exactly as it does in your garden if you leave the soil uncovered. Now, because the fate of water and carbon are tied to soil organic matter, when we damage soils, you give off carbon. Carbon goes back to the atmosphere. Now you’re told over and over, repeatedly, that desertification is only occurring in arid and semi-arid areas of the world, and that tall grasslands like this one in high rainfall are of no consequence. But if you do not look at grasslands but look down into them, you find that most of the soil in that grassland that you’ve just seen is bare and covered with a crust of algae, leading to increased runoff and evaporation. That is the cancer of desertification that we do not recognize till its terminal form. Now we know that desertification is caused by livestock, mostly cattle, sheep and goats, overgrazing the plants, leaving the soil bare and giving off methane. Almost everybody knows this, from nobel laureates to golf caddies, or was taught it, as I was. Now, the environments like you see here, dusty environments in Africa where I grew up, and I loved wildlife, and so I grew up hating livestock because of the damage they were doing. And then my university education as an ecologist reinforced my beliefs. Well, I have news for you. We were once just as certain that the world was flat. We were wrong then, and we are wrong again. And I want to invite you now to come along on my journey of reeducation and discovery. When I was a young man, a young biologist in Africa, I was involved in setting aside marvelous areas as future national parks. Now no sooner — this was in the 1950s — and no sooner did we remove the hunting, drum-beating people to protect the animals, than the land began to deteriorate, as you see in this park that we formed. Now, no livestock were involved, but suspecting that we had too many elephants now, I did the research and I proved we had too many, and I recommended that we would have to reduce their numbers and bring them down to a level that the land could sustain. Now, that was a terrible decision for me to have to make, and it was political dynamite, frankly. So our government formed a team of experts to evaluate my research. They did. They agreed with me, and over the following years, we shot 40,000 elephants to try to stop the damage. And it got worse, not better. Loving elephants as I do, that was the saddest and greatest blunder of my life, and I will carry that to my grave. One good thing did come out of it. It made me absolutely determined to devote my life to finding solutions. When I came to the United States, I got a shock, to find national parks like this one desertifying as badly as anything in Africa. And there’d been no livestock on this land for over 70 years. And I found that American scientists had no explanation for this except that it is arid and natural. So I then began looking at all the research plots I could over the whole of the Western United States where cattle had been removed to prove that it would stop desertification, but I found the opposite, as we see on this research station, where this grassland that was green in 1961, by 2002 had changed to that situation. And the authors of the position paper on climate change from which I obtained these pictures attribute this change to “unknown processes.” Clearly, we have never understood what is causing desertification, which has destroyed many civilizations and now threatens us globally. We have never understood it. Take one square meter of soil and make it bare like this is down here, and I promise you, you will find it much colder at dawn and much hotter at midday than that same piece of ground if it’s just covered with litter, plant litter. You have changed the microclimate. Now, by the time you are doing that and increasing greatly the percentage of bare ground on more than half the world’s land, you are changing macroclimate. But we have just simply not understood why was it beginning to happen 10,000 years ago? Why has it accelerated lately? We had no understanding of that. What we had failed to understand was that these seasonal humidity environments of the world, the soil and the vegetation developed with very large numbers of grazing animals, and that these grazing animals developed with ferocious pack-hunting predators. Now, the main defense against pack-hunting predators is to get into herds, and the larger the herd, the safer the individuals. Now, large herds dung and urinate all over their own food, and they have to keep moving, and it was that movement that prevented the overgrazing of plants, while the periodic trampling ensured good cover of the soil, as we see where a herd has passed. This picture is a typical seasonal grassland. It has just come through four months of rain, and it’s now going into eight months of dry season. And watch the change as it goes into this long dry season. Now, all of that grass you see aboveground has to decay biologically before the next growing season, and if it doesn’t, the grassland and the soil begin to die. Now, if it does not decay biologically, it shifts to oxidation, which is a very slow process, and this smothers and kills grasses, leading to a shift to woody vegetation and bare soil, releasing carbon. To prevent that, we have traditionally used fire. But fire also leaves the soil bare, releasing carbon, and worse than that, burning one hectare of grassland gives off more, and more damaging, pollutants than 6,000 cars. And we are burning in Africa, every single year, more than one billion hectares of grasslands, and almost nobody is talking about it. We justify the burning, as scientists, because it does remove the dead material and it allows the plants to grow. Now, looking at this grassland of ours that has gone dry, what could we do to keep that healthy? And bear in mind, I’m talking of most of the world’s land now. Okay? We cannot reduce animal numbers to rest it more without causing desertification and climate change. We cannot burn it without causing desertification and climate change. What are we going to do? There is only one option, I’ll repeat to you, only one option left to climatologists and scientists, and that is to do the unthinkable, and to use livestock, bunched and moving, as a proxy for former herds and predators, and mimic nature. There is no other alternative left to mankind. So let’s do that. So on this bit of grassland, we’ll do it, but just in the foreground. We’ll impact it very heavily with cattle to mimic nature, and we’ve done so, and look at that. All of that grass is now covering the soil as dung, urine and litter or mulch, as every one of the gardeners amongst you would understand, and that soil is ready to absorb and hold the rain, to store carbon, and to break down methane. And we did that, without using fire to damage the soil, and the plants are free to grow. When I first realized that we had no option as scientists but to use much-vilified livestock to address climate change and desertification, I was faced with a real dilemma. How were we to do it? We’d had 10,000 years of extremely knowledgeable pastoralists bunching and moving their animals, but they had created the great manmade deserts of the world. Then we’d had 100 years of modern rain science, and that had accelerated desertification, as we first discovered in Africa and then confirmed in the United States, and as you see in this picture of land managed by the federal government. Clearly more was needed than bunching and moving the animals, and humans, over thousands of years, had never been able to deal with nature’s complexity. But we biologists and ecologists had never tackled anything as complex as this. So rather than reinvent the wheel, I began studying other professions to see if anybody had. And I found there were planning techniques that I could take and adapt to our biological need, and from those I developed what we call holistic management and planned grazing, a planning process, and that does address all of nature’s complexity and our social, environmental, economic complexity. Today, we have young women like this one teaching villages in Africa how to put their animals together into larger herds, plan their grazing to mimic nature, and where we have them hold their animals overnight — we run them in a predator-friendly manner, because we have a lot of lands, and so on — and where they do this and hold them overnight to prepare the crop fields, we are getting very great increases in crop yield as well. Let’s look at some results. This is land close to land that we manage in Zimbabwe. It has just come through four months of very good rains it got that year, and it’s going into the long dry season. But as you can see, all of that rain, almost of all it, has evaporated from the soil surface. Their river is dry despite the rain just having ended, and we have 150,000 people on almost permanent food aid. Now let’s go to our land nearby on the same day, with the same rainfall, and look at that. Our river is flowing and healthy and clean. It’s fine. The production of grass, shrubs, trees, wildlife, everything is now more productive, and we have virtually no fear of dry years. And we did that by increasing the cattle and goats 400 percent, planning the grazing to mimic nature and integrate them with all the elephants, buffalo, giraffe and other animals that we have. But before we began, our land looked like that. This site was bare and eroding for over 30 years regardless of what rain we got. Okay? Watch the marked tree and see the change as we use livestock to mimic nature. This was another site where it had been bare and eroding, and at the base of the marked small tree, we had lost over 30 centimeters of soil. Okay? And again, watch the change just using livestock to mimic nature. And there are fallen trees in there now, because the better land is now attracting elephants, etc. This land in Mexico was in terrible condition, and I’ve had to mark the hill because the change is so profound. (Applause) I began helping a family in the Karoo Desert in the 1970s turn the desert that you see on the right there back to grassland, and thankfully, now their grandchildren are on the land with hope for the future. And look at the amazing change in this one, where that gully has completely healed using nothing but livestock mimicking nature, and once more, we have the third generation of that family on that land with their flag still flying. The vast grasslands of Patagonia are turning to desert as you see here. The man in the middle is an Argentinian researcher, and he has documented the steady decline of that land over the years as they kept reducing sheep numbers. They put 25,000 sheep in one flock, really mimicking nature now with planned grazing, and they have documented a 50-percent increase in the production of the land in the first year. We now have in the violent Horn of Africa pastoralists planning their grazing to mimic nature and openly saying it is the only hope they have of saving their families and saving their culture. Ninety-five percent of that land can only feed people from animals. I remind you that I am talking about most of the world’s land here that controls our fate, including the most violent region of the world, where only animals can feed people from about 95 percent of the land. What we are doing globally is causing climate change as much as, I believe, fossil fuels, and maybe more than fossil fuels. But worse than that, it is causing hunger, poverty, violence, social breakdown and war, and as I am talking to you, millions of men, women and children are suffering and dying. And if this continues, we are unlikely to be able to stop the climate changing, even after we have eliminated the use of fossil fuels. I believe I’ve shown you how we can work with nature at very low cost to reverse all this. We are already doing so on about 15 million hectares on five continents, and people who understand far more about carbon than I do calculate that, for illustrative purposes, if we do what I am showing you here, we can take enough carbon out of the atmosphere and safely store it in the grassland soils for thousands of years, and if we just do that on about half the world’s grasslands that I’ve shown you, we can take us back to pre-industrial levels, while feeding people. I can think of almost nothing that offers more hope for our planet, for your children, and their children, and all of humanity. Thank you. (Applause) Thank you. (Applause) Thank you, Chris. Chris Anderson: Thank you. I have, and I’m sure everyone here has, A) a hundred questions, B) wants to hug you. I’m just going to ask you one quick question. When you first start this and you bring in a flock of animals, it’s desert. What do they eat? How does that part work? How do you start? Allan Savory: Well, we have done this for a long time, and the only time we have ever had to provide any feed is during mine reclamation, where it’s 100 percent bare. But many years ago, we took the worst land in Zimbabwe, where I offered a £5 note in a hundred-mile drive if somebody could find one grass in a hundred-mile drive, and on that, we trebled the stocking rate, the number of animals, in the first year with no feeding, just by the movement, mimicking nature, and using a sigmoid curve, that principle. It’s a little bit technical to explain here, but just that. CA: Well, I would love to — I mean, this such an interesting and important idea. The best people on our blog are going to come and talk to you and try and — I want to get more on this that we could share along with the talk.AS: Wonderful. CA: That is an astonishing talk, truly an astonishing talk, and I think you heard that we all are cheering you on your way. Thank you so much.AS: Well, thank you. Thank you. Thank you, Chris. (Applause)

  1. Yes but we should increase the buffalo population in North America and each region with its native animals not just cows ….please. Haha.

  2. As this thought process isn't in keeping with the current politically correct theory of global warming being forced down our throats, no-one will listen until it's way too late. the same nonsense is the fanatical mantra about making electric cars the norm, but how much power will be needed to charge up these vehicles and how is that power going to be generated and how much carbon will be produced in building power stations to provide the necessary energy. Instead Hydrogen powered cars would be a better alternative, Hydrogen being the most abundant gas in the universe, and the by-product of using Hydrogen is water…far safer and environmentally friendly than electric vehicles.

  3. All well and good, but he hasn't done his research on CO2.
    Plants aren't getting enough CO2 to thrive. 400ppm needs to be 500-800ppm CO2.
    The sad fact might be that as climatologists insist on less CO2 emissions plantlife will diminish.

  4. ITS BULLSHIT The world is cooling according to the real data and the Polar Bears are on the rise, so is ICE etc etc, This is caused by bankers and Global population Nazi's.

  5. This small scale farming is a great idea for agricultural societies in the world. It brings jobs, purpose and hope for farming communities. Unfortunately, factory farming is used to produce food for western society, and increasingly done in the Brazilian Amazon rainforest, Africa and Southeast Asia where no threat of desertification existed until we started slash and burn farming for cattle and palm oil.

    Factory farming needs to change to a localized model like this one. Unfortunately, small farms are inefficient in the west and can’t compete with the economics of modern factory farming. Carbon will still be a problem until we stop using oil as the base of the global economy.

  6. Por donde avanzan los musulmanes crece el desierto, ¿ tendrán algo que ver ?.O es su forma de vida y de gestión agrícola ,es decir su mentalidad.

  7. We don't let our cows overgraze. Our soil's organic matter content is always a net gain each year (air carbon has been trapped and converted to organic matter) , so don't let anybody tell you that a vegetable based diet is the way to go.

  8. not doubting the process, quite amazing really, but what of the enormous amounts of gas generated by the large herds? does this also balance out? if someone is more informed on this than i am id love to know.

  9. Why do I get the feeling that this guy feels that fossil fuels have absolutely nothing to do with climate change, but he only says it because he feels he has to for political reasons?

  10. Yes ,the co host asked the exact question which was on my mind and I believe the answer from Mr Savory was unsatisfactory,what are the animals going to eat when this process is initiated ,edible grass would take around 4 weeks to grow in perfect conditions ,in the meantime there is zero feed for stock on the land shown ,sheep and cattle feed all day ,it’s incredible how much grass they need to survive.I can see the logic and don’t disbelieve the man however this is a big question for me.

  11. SO BY DESTROYING OUR CATTLE INDUSTRY…. THERE ACTUALLY WIPING OUT OUR FRUIT AND VEGGIE INDUSTRY !!! IT'S CALLED DEPOPULATION / AGENDA 21 / SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT !!! Another reason for them trying to turn us into vegans is that Grazing animals produce vitamin K2-7 and store it in their fat. Humans need this vitamin because it transports calcium to the parts of the body that need it. It builds up bones / joints / teeth / and prevents calcium build up in the heart arteries. It has been suggested that without it calcium sits loosely between our joints causing wear and tear and Arthritis. Think how much big pharma and the medical industry stands to loose if we didn't wear out as quick !

  12. Re: Allan Savory

    He fumbled at the end. He should’ve answered that during the time allotted him by explaining that if there’s no forage at all, then you feed them for a while — there are Australians using his method doing so. You begin at key locations like swales, etcetera. It’s a slow process, but it works. The cattle break up the hard pan so that rain can penetrate, that is — if you’re not already in the middle of a serious drought. This means that for some locales Savory’s method has to be put on hold. For how long? That depends on how far “down the rabbit hole” of climate change driven desertification we’ve gone.

  13. Don't forget,
    During the 1970s the media promoted global cooling alarmism with dire threats of a new ice age.
    Now again is Climate Change cult agenda a politic Scam!

  14. Allan Savory, you are wrong again and the earth is flat… You are a fraud!

    Natural science and 2nd law of thermodynamics tell us, we need a container (barrier, bearing) to hold the volume and the gas-pressure atmosphere! especially if you have besides the so-called vacuum of the space!
    But creators of the globe model has forgotten to take that to the count!
    It violates the 2nd law of thermodynamics.
    We can get pressure gradient in the same container with different temperature in the layers eg. if you put ice cubs at the bottom and heat the top of the container you get the different region of high-pressure gas right next to a region of low-pressure.

    The pressures in the container with the gaseous water would be much higher due to the higher temperature. The decrease in temperature with height is a result of the decreasing pressure. If a parcel of air moves upwards it expands (because of the lower pressure). When air expands it cools. So air higher up is cooler than air lower down.

    In the case of the liquid water with a vacuum, it would instantly start boiling and depending on the temperature also possibly freezing due to the low pressure
    the fluid is non-compressible (e.g. water), but gases (e.g. air) whose density can change considerably.

    Boyle's law is often used as part of an explanation of how the breathing system works in the human body. This commonly involves explaining how the lung volume may be increased or decreased and thereby cause a relatively lower or higher air pressure within them (in keeping with Boyle's law). This forms a pressure difference between the air inside the lungs and the environmental air pressure, which in turn precipitates either inhalation or exhalation as air moves from high to low pressure.

    The density, or more precisely, the volumetric mass density, of a substance is its mass per unit volume.

    The density of a material varies with temperature and pressure. This variation is typically small for solids and liquids but much greater for gases. Increasing the pressure on an object decreases the volume of the object and thus increases its density. Increasing the temperature of a substance (with a few exceptions) decreases its density by increasing its volume. In most materials, heating the bottom of fluid results in convection of the heat from the bottom to the top, due to the decrease in the density of the heated fluid. This causes it to rise relative to more dense unheated material.

    The reciprocal of the density of a substance is occasionally called its specific volume, a term sometimes used in thermodynamics. Density is an intensive property in that increasing the amount of a substance does not increase its density; rather it increases its mass.


    The mathematical equation for Boyle's law is:
    {displaystyle PV=k} PV=k
    P denotes the pressure of the system.
    V denotes the volume of the gas.
    k is a constant value representative of the temperature and volume of the system.
    Law Question: How can you have VOLUME without a container? involves
    Volume is the quantity of three-dimensional space ENCLOSED by a CLOSED SURFACE*. for example, the space that a substance (solid, liquid gas, or plasma) or shape occupies or *contains VOLUME is often quantified numerically using the SI derived unit, the cubic meter.
    The VOLUME of the CONTAINER is generally understood to be the capacity of the CONTAINER *; i.e,, the amount of fluid (gas or liquid) that the *CONTAINER could hold, rather than the amount of space the CONTAINER itself displaces.

    GAS EXPANSION Into a VACUUM is mixing of ideal gases or liquid, diffusion, effusion, collective effects, and osmosis each fundamentally

    involves an INCREASE IN ENTROPY due to increased dispersion of energy. (with no change in total energy in the cases of ideal substances)
    do to a greater number of micro-states for the particular system involved.
    Globe Believers FAIRY-TAILS!
    1) According to the fairytale narrative, there's a *VACUUM SURROUNDING YOUR SPINNING BALL.
    2) We obviously have a Gas (Atmospheric) Pressure.
    3) The earth IS NOT a SEALED CONTAINER
    4) THE gas-pressure IS NOT expanding into the vacuum. ERGO…
    If your theory is against the SECOND LAW OF THERMODYNAMICS, I can give you no hope,
    there is nothing for you but to

  15. CO2 is not causing climate change. It is the sun activity that controls the weather which changes wind and warms up oceans. Ph Lvl is causing the corals to bleach, not temperature. Its because the temperature is warm coral is able to grow. #Power of truth Patrick Moore

  16. I was really shocked when he said that he did research and concluded that their was too much elephants in the area and his organisation actually got permission to kill 40,000. He went on to say that he made a mistake and is sorry now but I can't believe they kill all those animals for a silly reason in my opinion. I am flabbergasted.

  17. populace 'fear' created through 'Climate Change' will become the growing 'Climate EMERGENCY and Climate CRISIS', and the catalyst to bring about Civil enforcement of 'Sunday rest'; and the "spiritual solution" to the Climate Emergency & Crisis will inevitably result in "Sunday 'rest' Legislation" via populist governments; the 'Christian Churches' will advance and support this 'spiritual solution' ; but Bible Prophecy indicates the Climate Emergency and Crisis will be the catalyst leading to a 'spiritual error' of 'Sunday rest Enforcement' a spiritual deception of grand proportions, in that it strikes directly against the Ten Commandment Law of God, in particular the Seventh-day Sabbath rest day, in which God declares He is the Creator and the Sabbath a special Sign of His Authority !!!….

    "The Great Controversy between Christ and Satan" Ellen G. White, 1888, rev.1911

    Chapter 36—The Impending Conflict….

    Satan works through the elements also to garner his harvest of unprepared souls. He has studied the secrets of the laboratories of nature, and he uses all his power to control the elements as far as God allows. When he was suffered to afflict Job, how quickly flocks and herds, servants, houses, children, were swept away, one trouble succeeding another as in a moment. It is God that shields His creatures and hedges them in from the power of the destroyer. But the Christian world have shown contempt for the law of Jehovah; and the Lord will do just what He has declared that He would—He will withdraw His blessings from the earth and remove His protecting care from those who are rebelling against His law and teaching and forcing others to do the same.Satan has control of all whom God does not especially guard. He will favor and prosper some in order to further his own designs, and he will bring trouble upon others and lead men to believe that it is God who is afflicting them. GC 589.2

    While appearing to the children of men as a great physician who can heal all their maladies, he will bring disease and disaster, until populous cities are reduced to ruin and desolation. Even now he is at work. In accidents and calamities by sea and by land, in great conflagrations, in fierce tornadoes and terrific hailstorms, in tempests, floods, cyclones, tidal waves, and earthquakes, in every place and in a thousand forms, Satan is exercising his power. He sweeps away the ripening harvest, and famine and distress follow. He imparts to the air a deadly taint, and thousands perish by the pestilence. These visitations are to become more and more frequent and disastrous. Destruction will be upon both man and beast. “The earth mourneth and fadeth away,” “the haughty people … do languish. The earth also is defiled under the inhabitants thereof; because they have transgressed the laws, changed the ordinance, broken the everlasting covenant.” Isaiah 24:4, 5. GC 589.3

    And then the great deceiver will persuade men that those who serve God are causing these evils. The class that have provoked the displeasure of Heaven will charge all their troubles upon those whose obedience to God’s commandments is a perpetual reproof to transgressors. It will be declared that men are offending God by the violation of the Sunday sabbath; that this sin has brought calamities which will not cease until Sunday observance shall be strictly enforced; and that those who present the claims of the fourth commandment, thus destroying reverence for Sunday, are troublers of the people, preventing their restoration to divine favor and temporal prosperity. Thus the accusation urged of old against the servant of God will be repeated and upon grounds equally well established: “And it came to pass, when Ahab saw Elijah, that Ahab said unto him, Art thou he that troubleth Israel? And he answered, I have not troubled Israel; but thou, and thy father’s house, in that ye have forsaken the commandments of the Lord, and thou hast followed Baalim.” 1 Kings 18:17, 18. As the wrath of the people shall be excited by false charges, they will pursue a course toward God’s ambassadors very similar to that which apostate Israel pursued toward Elijah. GC 590.1

    Through the two great errors, the immortality of the soul and Sunday sacredness, Satan will bring the people under his deceptions. While the former lays the foundation of spiritualism, the latter creates a bond of sympathy with Rome. The Protestants of the United States will be foremost in stretching their hands across the gulf to grasp the hand of spiritualism; they will reach over the abyss to clasp hands with the Roman power; and under the influence of this threefold union, this country will follow in the steps of Rome in trampling on the rights of conscience. GC 588.1

    National Apostasy Will Be Followed by National Ruin

    When our nation, in its legislative councils, shall enact laws to bind the consciences of men in regard to their religious privileges, enforcing Sunday observance, and bringing oppressive power to bear against those who keep the seventh-day Sabbath, the law of God will, to all intents and purposes, be made void in our land, and national apostasy will be followed by national ruin.—The S.D.A. Bible Commentary 7:977 (1888). LDE 133.5

    It is at the time of the national apostasy when, acting on the policy of Satan, the rulers of the land will rank themselves on the side of the man of sin.It is then the measure of guilt is full. The national apostasy is the signal for national ruin.—Selected Messages 2:373 (1891). LDE 134.1

    Roman Catholic principles will be taken under the care and protection of the state. This national apostasy will speedily be followed by national ruin.—The Review and Herald, June 15, 1897. LDE 134.2

    When Protestant churches shall unite with the secular power to sustain a false religion, for opposing that which their ancestors endured the fiercest persecution, then will the papal sabbath be enforced by the combined authority of church and state. There will be a national apostasy, which will end only in national ruin.—Evangelism, 235 (1899).LDE 134.3

    When the state shall use its power to enforce the decrees and sustain the institutions of the church—then will Protestant America have formed an image to the papacy, and there will be a national apostasy which will end only in national ruin.—The S.D.A. Bible Commentary 7:976 (1910). LDE 134.4

    modern day passages from a true modern day Prophet of God….

    The restraining Spirit of God is even now being withdrawn from the world. Hurricanes, storms, tempests, fire and flood, disasters by sea and land, follow each other in quick succession. Science seeks to explain all these. The signs thickening around us, telling of the near approach of the Son of God, are attributed to any other than the true cause. Men cannot discern the sentinel angels restraining the four winds that they shall not blow until the servants of God are sealed; but when God shall bid His angels loose the winds, there shall be such a scene of strife as no pen can picture. – Testimonies for the Church 6:408.
    The days in which we live are solemn and important. The Spirit of God is gradually but surely being withdrawn from the earth. Plagues and judgments are already falling upon the despisers of the grace of God. The calamities by land and sea, the unsettled state of society, the alarms of war, are portentous. They forecast approaching events of the greatest magnitude. The agencies of evil are combining their forces, and consolidating. They are strengthening for the last great crisis. Great changes are soon to take place in our world, and the final movements will be rapid ones. – Testimonies for the Church 9:11.
    The time is at hand when there will be sorrow in the world that no human balm can heal. The Spirit of God is being withdrawn. Disasters by sea and by land follow one another in quick succession. How frequently we hear of earthquakes and tornadoes, of destruction by fire and flood, with great loss of life and property! Apparently these calamities are capricious outbreaks of disorganized, unregulated forces of nature, wholly beyond the control of man; but in them all, God's purpose may be read. They are among the agencies by which He seeks to arouse men and women to a sense of their danger. – Prophets and Kings, 277. ChS 52.1 – ChS 52.3

  18. Men will never fully understand mother nature but keep trying to control her and its inhabitants. Men are the real problem driven by personal wealth. They are the real cancer. PS livestock make manure which is fertilizer. I could have told him that. Duh

  19. Yeah, working with nature is the way! But there's all kinds of other methods to enrich the soil as well. Many depending on what resources you have available. Like being able to dam and hold water for dry seasons, and so increasing the biodiversity and richness and health of the ecosystem.
    The point is, you can't just think a single solution will be sufficient. Well, it might be for some places, but you have to observe and understand the land you are working with.

  20. The title is so misleading. The guy does not talk about the deserts. He takes about areas which become deserts. Big difference!

  21. “I killed 40,000 elephants as a solution. It failed terribly. So I decided to dedicate my life to finding more solutions” What’s wrong with this picture?

  22. You can never stop climate change because the climate has been changing continuously since the earth was formed. There are too many overwhelming forces over which we have no control.

  23. All right you meat lovers, what you all need to do is not chop down forested land for your cattle, but use arid regions and do planned movement. That way the forests stay put, the arid regions become green and you all have more meat to eat. Win – win-win

  24. Great speech. Though, at no point in time did people believe (en mass) that the world was flat. Don't know why I had to point that out.

  25. Correction. Livestock does not leave the earth bare
    They would grass but not eat it to the root. It will leave just enough to keep grass alive

  26. 6 years ago and we still have the same issue, 6 years from now we will still have the same issue but worse. See what’s similar? No one did anything.

  27. What a madman. This self-proclaimed genius has no idea of the true long-term effects of his formulas. The Earth goes through massive shifts regardless of humans, fossil fuels or whatever. Global warming (global cooling too) is nothing new & will continue to happen as long as Earth exists. So many subscribe to this absurd religion.

  28. To the question of what do the animals (livestock) eat when beginning the process: they will eat anything, this is why you would start with goats, who eat shrubs and grass, versus cattle who typically only eat grass. The animals will first eat whatever is available: cactus, shrubs, etc. After the clearing of unwanted vegetation has occurred, and the soil has been broken up by the numerous animals, this will cause a better environment for grass to repopulate the area.

  29. So inspired…I will be trying it. If this can be added in the lesson plans in schools that will be wonderful!

  30. All the hard work this guys done has been wasted by the Burning of the Amazon. Thats going to cause some huge problems for mankind and they just let it happen.

  31. You must comfirm areas like Australia are different to the northern lands on this EARTH. Acidic soil and marsupials are destroyed by sheep ans hard foot animals. No to farming
    in Australia. We need to nurture Australia by bringing back what farmAZ have destroyed ever since white man invaded thia country. Feeding humans is just a small part or the realuzation of refirm and reforestry. The grass introduced in Australia has caused thousands of farm animals to die in the Australian Drought. Also farms have caused bluegree algie in the dams and rivers from over farming. Our country has been destroyed, our Koalas have no forest and the need for repair is in order. Cats and dogs have illiminated marsupials by desiese. You dont need scuence to support humans bur need to understand the country and the first nation's lifestyle and learn from them before even turning tbe soil or introducing grasses. Yoy gave so much to learn. Change is Important in our lives. What is important is not our needs but the country's needs. humans are the problem.

  32. You "Mimic Nature" & Holistic Grazing needs 2b implemented now! This may be the GREATEST discovery ever!!!
    Approach Bill Gates, Warren Buffet, ALL Capital Investors, Nations, IMF & UN, etc. (but these 2 are crooked, nepharious, but SHOULD do it!).
    This method, based on your research (pics2prove), is not only effective – BUT COST-EFFECTIVE ACROSS THE BOARD: in $investment savings & cost of lives lost (disease, famine, wars) & the sustainable VALUE 2our planet and ppl worldwide.

  33. this is all well and good but he fails to explain how when barren for so long did the grasses just turn up again? I know here in Australia that once barren and washed / blown there is no seed to regenerate from ,,,so how?? Oh and livestock will introduce all the wrong grasses as well. seems there are some holes in what he is saying,, yes mulched ground is better but you have to have seed to start with.

  34. In ancient India they developed many sophisticated water conservation techniques due to the Monsoons. They learned to create a vast network of holding tanks above & underground to hold the Monsoon flood waters for the dry season. They also used channels & canals to funnel the waters to crops & animals. In Africa why not lay down prefab concrete or steel water conduits in key flood areas to catch the water & draw it into underground water storage for the people & animals to use. In the Iranian desert they have been using a system of underground Qanat channels for thousands of years. These prevent evaporation & preserve the water so it can be transported to where it is needed. Systems like this need to be set up in Australia where there is terrible drought that causes large herds of animals to suffer.

  35. We still need rain if there is no water things will die the cattle or livestock need to be fed and watered it is hard enough trying to manage a
    small amount of livestock and no finances to purchase more . If this were true why are so many farmers committing suicide in Australia because of livestock dying .If you have orchards or produce farms one cannot have cattle on the same block.

  36. I think environmental science should be a mandatory class in school now. I know it seems a bit extreme, but if we just at least make a small impact on the most stubborn of minds on this topic; there would be a great change.


  38. WE call this Permaculture, our aim, leave the land better than found. Plant a few 1000 tree's, and make it against the law NOT to grow Hemp…a fine or jail if you have more than 10 acres…must grow Hemp.chop and drop at worst, recondition the soil… world's pollution worries ended.,food sorted, no need for fossil fuels. Never a need to fell another tree..USA built on the back of Hemp..2019 worlds largest IMPORTER ..who let that, jobs, jobs are back..plastic is gone, petrol not needed..and then we have #Hempcrete

  39. I DO NOT understand how I am only seeing this now. It boggles my mind!!! I have reviewed so much material from Bill Morrison and Geoff Lawton and only recently has YT suggested these videos! WTF?

  40. The only solution for saving the planet is during 50 year, one family, only one baby.
    With the actual population we are going to the disaster.

  41. Nope. Something not so right. The talk seems technical and shows photos but the numbers don't seem to make sense. Sigmoid curve it seems, I seriously doubt the nature of this talk.
    What's the end plan, how will you return the land to nature ? What about the wild animals ?

  42. I dont like this guy. 40 000 elephants killed. He made that mistake back then who knows how many more is capable of.
    “Loving elephants as i do”
    Seriously??? Loving them to the death??
    Gfy pos!!!

  43. Wait, animal farts/poo good? Climate hoaxters are going to lose it! Pass me a cheeseburger!!! Whaooo hoooooo!

  44. how do i buy stock in this concept?
    Can we also get this guy to talk with the dumbasses burning the amazon for livestock farming? there's already a desert perfect for it, why don't we use that instead of burning down a forest to create a desert, just to grow livestock? it's the same thing with extra steps, and harming our environment…

  45. So cutting down the Amazon wasn’t such a great idea ? They don’t want us living they want us dead. That’s why they want your money to fix issues they created.

  46. I haven't seen the entire video yet, but am I the only one that is considering the fact that turning desert biomes into tropical biomes, will in fact, kill all of the species that live in the desert?

  47. You PROVE that elephants were the mistake.

    Can you accept that you can go wrong elsewhere?

    Search “earth greening co2´´
    Where, among other things, you will find NASA showing, Via satellites that the earth is greener by more CO2.

  48. Not a denier, just a major skeptic.

    The biggest problem with climate change is that NOBODY will ever come forward with a large and diversified panel of experts (or) at least a mountain of unbiased research that has not yet been funded or hand picked by a major political organization.

    They always say, (look at the science). And I'm always asking, show me the science. From my experience, political bluffs are becoming a much more viable way to swing votes in elections these days. When you have a big enough voice and they claim that you can look at the evidence for yourself, since you usually won't. You simply take them at their word with the idea that its fool proof.

    "99% of scientists agree!"

    (No, 97 of 99 scientists hand picked to do a study on the climate at the University of Chicago *agree*, lobbied for by the Obama Administration). And that same president just bought a $12 Million dollar water front mansion with his wife. Not the most compelling case.

    This topic has become political to the point of retardation and the evidence is not sound when it constantly involves politically backed research and campaigns.

    Anybody remember An Inconvenient Truth by Al Gore Jr.?

    He claimed that all 33,000 ice sheets would be gone by 2013 and the polar bears would be submerged. They found that his scientific data had been crunched and falsified in more ways than one. Yet he raised multiple millions from his campaign.
